Free Pace Car Program Sign-up

Thursday, July 25 by joegorun

With the Pace Car magnet you let other drivers know your intention to drive the speed limit. Pace Car drivers pledge to obey traffic laws to protect pedestrians, bicyclists, and other drivers. By being a Pace Car you set the pace and make West Windsor’s streets safer for everyone. Pledge to make a difference today!


Join the West Windsor Speed Limit Pace Car Program and pledge to:

• Drive the speed limit
• Stop at stop signs
• Stop for pedestrians in marked crosswalks
• Yield to pedestrians in unmarked crosswalks at intersections
• Share the road with pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities
• Eliminate texting and phone use while driving
• Display the West Windsor Pace Car magnet on your car
• Encourage others to take the pledge

Together, we can make West Windsor streets safer for everyone: Pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists.

How does it work? Simply download the form, fill it out, drop it off at the WW Municipal Office or WW Branch Library and pick up your car magnet.

Fun Fact: The Pace Car Program was created by David Engwicht, an international traffic-calming advocate and author of several books on the topic of reducing the negative effects of motor vehicle traffic. Pace Car Programs have been adopted by towns across the United States and Canada.

Donate your old bikes

Monday, September 10 by joegorun

Support Our Bike Drive (And the Boys & Girls Club)

Do you have bikes you no longer need cluttering up your garage or basement? Bring them to West Windsor Farmers? Market (Vaughn Drive parking lot, off Alexander Road) between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 22 for the WWBPA?s bike drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton.

Bicycles of all sizes and condition are gratefully accepted, and donations are tax-deductible. Last year, we collected more than 50 bikes, and this year, we’re working to do even more.

The bikes are refurbished by the volunteers of?Bike Exchange?and sold at their store in Ewing. Proceeds fund the Boys and Girls Club?s after-school programs. This amazing group had already sold more than 500 bikes THIS YEAR and raised thousands of $ for the Boys & Girls Club. (Watch this video?about Bike Exchange and Boys & Girls Club.)

Bike Exchange also supports the WWBPA?s ?learn to bike? classes by lending us a few bikes just in case a participant needs a slightly different size. Sometimes that makes all the difference!

If you miss the bike drive, several area bike shops serve as drop-off sites.

If you?re looking for a bike for your child that you know will be outgrown pretty quickly, this is a great place to consider. It?s also a great place to find authentic retro bikes, among other kinds, for adults. (It?s not a replacement for a bike shop, just a nice addition).
